. with me is ron reagan and dana milbank of the "washington post." before we talk about the gop split, we should republicans in the white house have exchanged new proposal tsds today. and president obama and boehner have spoken at this time. quote, we sent the white house a counteroffer that would achieve reform to solve our looming debt crisis and create more jobs. that's all we know. dana milbank, they say it's good. they said it will solve our problems. they won't say what it is. explain. >> well, look, we're still in the fairly early stage of posturing here, and nobody can strike a deal until they get closer to it, until their feet are to the fire. >> when do you say the fire begins? >> nobody can make any prediction for sure -- >> try. >> they could hammer this out in three hours if they really wanted to. >> that's right. >> but if they don't wait until the very end of december or even go over the cliff -- >> i think it's 21. i'm going to bet on -- what's your hunch about this, ron reagan? you're here -- i think they're going to try to get it done by christmas just for efficiency's s
to defund, to hurt money that goes to the democratic party. we've obtained rid of videotapes of ron wiser and others talking about this governor. >> jennifer: tell people who ron wiser is. >> ron wiser is the former chair of the republican party here. rich is the dnc finance chair. he along with your former opponent, dick devos and other rich folks have been planning this for years. they couldn't get away with it while you were governor but they saw their opportunity here. they don't talk about worker's rights and choice. they talk about how can we hurt the labor movement and hurt the democratic party. that's their goal here. >> jennifer: all right. so let's talk about -- because michelle are is norris another . [ whistle ] how do you think this will roll across other states? it is the first blue state to become right to work. do you think we'll see it across the country? >> yes. that's what people need to be alerted to here. if they can do it in michigan, which has the fifth highest concentration of union members i
to protest. we have the late ev. good evening ron. this one got pretty rowdy didn't it? >> it did indeed. but because there were two arrests as we are told. two people tried to storm into the governor's office building across the street. police were happy with how folks hafed themselves today. probably 10,000 probably a smaller group than we saw in wisconsin last year when that issue blew up in neighboring wisconsin. today i spoke to the governor who said this is not about the charges coming from the leadership. he said this is about fairness and giving workers the right to choose whether they so choose or refrain from joining a june on. here is the governor talking about this issue. >> shouldn't the juunions be putting this out and should bt the workers make the decision? so that is why i view this as pro worker and not anti-union. they are upset about how this was pushed through. a lame duck section. democrats won ten extra seats and they felt that the culture in january would be different. they felt that they pushed this through because time was on their side. larry. >> many thanks le
me now, politico executive editor and ron mott live in lansing, michigan. first, you, ron mott, the day after the governor rick snyder has signed the right-to-work bills, what is the labor movement planning to do next? >> well, we don't know, andrea. pretty quiet on that front, much like it is down here on the street. far different scene yesterday, of course, a lot of union workers very upset about not just this legislation that's going to wipe out a 77-year-old requirement that workers be forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment, they are upset also about how this was jammed through the legislature. this was passed in both bodies in four days time and signed by the governor last night. what the advocates of this legislation say is union shops and unions no longer can just depend on fattening up their membership roles by default, they actually have to go out and sell themselves, sell their benefits to the workforce in order to earn those memberships. so we'll see how this all changes. the law will go into effect some time in late march or early april. we don't know
brothers, et cetera and he always was going to do this. in fact, here is former michigan gop mayorman, ron -wiser as he's talking about their plan dating back to 2007. he talks about how he met former governor john angler from michigan and former oklahoma governor keithing and dick debos and americans for prosperity and they patched up this plan. here he is talking about it. >> i was talking to governor keithing the last day to pass right to work, and i was with governor engleer. what we determined was that to win that election and be sure to win it, we put in a governor. we decided to wait until we had a governor. now, we have the legislature and we have the governor. >> all the way back in 2007 they have a meeting saying hey hey, let's wait until we get a republican governor in place then that governor can pretend he's not going to take away the worker's rights and the moment we have the majority, we strike and take away the workers rights and we screw them over. that was their plan all along. billionaire donors love that plan because they've been screwing their workers all the time. he
. next speaker please. >> hey, ron austin, executive haven't -- workers union, it's been a long day. we're here to say a few words for the record to the board we received correspondence from sf mta for a service reduction on the day before christmas and the week after, and subsequently that week in between new year's and christmas. and we didn't know if the board or the city knew. and this is something that was attempted a couple of weeks back with the thanksgiving week, in which we disapproved because the level of ridership that happens after or before the holiday actually is increased with increased shopping and commerce in the union square area, also with people still have to go to work. we've been kind of forced into the situation where they want to meet and confer over this for us to agree to the service cut and i don't think it follows the tenants of the traffic first quality to keep the level of service per the 1996 levels. also the budget includes funding to have a regular service schedule before and after the holiday. that was passed by this board and approved and we don't know
to bring the house down. with me is ron reagan and dana milbank of the "washington post." before we talk about the gop split, we should republicans in the white house have exchanged horses. that's the thought i have. i may be conservative about this. >> yeah, i think you're right, they'd like to, but i'm not sure they can get it done before christmas, maybe before the end of the year. i think, again, as we get down to the last few hours, i think then you will see a real push to get something done. as dana implied, everybody knows in a sense what this agreement in broad strokes is going to look like. we're going to have tax increases on the upper 2% and we're not going to have a tax increase on the middle class. and there's going to be some spending cuts. but that's, you know, that's about all we know. >> let's take a look at this fight that seems to be emerging on the right. it's not surprising. to some extent it may be represented on the left, but i don't think so. republicans fall into two camps. on fiscal reform and the question of the cliff. the realists we'll call them and the ideol
is not decimated. >> so joining us now are cnn contributor and democratic strategist lena cardona and ron barjean. is it me or does it appear that john mccain becomes more grumpy over time? he's like the neighbor, the guy when you put the ball in the neighbor's yard and he's like, hey, get out of my yard, kid. am i wrong with that? am i the only one who notices that, john? >> well, this is ron -- >> ron, i'm sorry. >> no, i think senator mccain makes some very good points about susan rice, and i think he's clearly frustrated about her comments that were made. i think he's frustrated about the fact she came to capitol hill and wasn't able to convince him nor lindsey graham or senator susan collins that she would be a good nominee to be secretary of state. so, you know, i think that's what you're hearing in his voice right now is a lot of frustration. >> i'm not only talking about this particular issue. we're going to get into the meat of that, but i'm talking about other issues, fiscal cliff and on and on and on. it just appears that way. lena, you heard some people talking about civil leaders wit
. >> yeah. >> let's get reaction from our guests, tyler verne oven builtmore capital and our friend ron insana and rick sell who got a shutout during the news conference identified as steve liesman's nemesis and steve who was the first questioner there during the chairman's news conference will be joining us shortly here as well. tyler vernon, what do you make of the fed's new view of monetary policy? they are targeting fed funds to go up when the unemployment rate goes to 6.5%? what do you make of that? >> well, i think what i make of that is that it's probably going to be around a lot longer than we think. before they talked about 2015, they continue to see an economy weakens, so i think it gives them flexibility to get the rates out a little longer. >> is that good or bad? >> you know, i think short term it's probably a good thing? long term i think it creates a lot of issues, and he even said, and i quote, asset purchases are less well understood, and he doesn't really understand the costs long term of these types of things. the market is down, look at where the market was now versu
for public comment. are there members of the public who wish to speak on item number 12? >>> yes, ron rubina. i just asked mr. kim if a little radio device would work in the bus shelters where they have, you know, number 22 arriving 50 minutes. he said yes. so, i wonder if not in this project, in some project, and if not with this money, some of that big emergency management money, you could put in at least the most used lines in some of the shelters emergency giants crowd bus arriving in 7 hours or bus broke down. i hope you'll get some of these little radio receivers in the shelters on the most used lines so people will know the bus is delayed. thank you. >> thank you. are there other members of the public who wish to speak on item 12? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, do we have a motion to approve the requested release of 1.6 million on reserve for the sfmta radio program? >> do we have to first motion to approve the amendments as recommended by the budget analyst? >> and to also accept the budget analyst recommendations. we have a notion to do that. and can we do that w
have agreed to look at revenues and move on revenues, whether during ron a ronald reagan or bush sr., the other part did not materialize, that is what you are worried about? >> absolutely, i was here before, i was here during the reagan years as a congressman, the cuts never came. neil: you want them concurrently whatever deal you have. with that? not a promise down the road? >> we have to, otherwise we'll be just like greece and half of europe. neil: some say we'll be like greece if in is no deal by the end of the year? >> i do not agree. we have to negotiate, the presiden needs to get involved. neil: the language changed little bit today, i notice when they are not attacking each other out in open, then progress must be being made. that is what led to rumors of a potential imminent deal yesterday. now they are back to sniping, speaker boehner and nancy pelosi and others going back and forth, that leads me to believe that things are falling apart, do you get that sense? >> we see here -- hear they are negotiating, we'll get a deal, then we hear the fighting going on, if the fightin
. ron paul was taking a powder to get out of the camera way in the house or whatever so these two guys are the two senators. >> stephanie: he's the senator from the green room. >> nobody wants to see mcconnell or boehner. they're the two that we'll take the spotlight because we look like we're in the process of doing something which for the record they're not! >> stephanie: dean in atlanta. you're on with hal. welcome, dean. >> caller: how are you? >> stephanie: good. go ahead. >> caller: i just want to preface my comment with the observation that i think -- i should practice law. i think justice scalia's pretty much a bully and -- has some issues of his own that need resolution. but i think you're missing the point and i haven't heard anybody really speak about it. either on your show or elsewhere i don't think he's saying that gay marriage is murder. what i think he would argue is that there is a -- that the government has the right to outlaw or make illegal behavior that it considers immoral. >> stephanie: r
-to-work state. governor rick snyder passing a new bill into law. ron motte is in lansing, michigan, with the latest. >> peace and quiet returned to the streets in the capital city. a far different scene than we saw here yesterday. about 10,000 people showed up. there was a lot of emotion on the lawn of the capital yesterday. a lot of the union workers believed this action was politically motivated, payback if you will for the successes of the democrats in michigan, but the president winning reelection as well. they think this is a death knell of the union in michigan. but the folks who advocated these changes to the workplace rules in michigan believe this gives workers more freedom, the freedoms they really should have to choose whether to join a union. the law will go into effect probably around april 1st or so. it's when the legislature ends its session now scheduled for december 20th. among the folks who lost this particular battle, believe this process should have included a lot more public debate. it was really rushed through the legislature over the past week or so. the hous
over the fiscal cliff have many tea party republicans like wisconsin senator ron johnson fuming. >> does speaker boehner speak for you? >> i don't know what he's doing behind closed doors, truthfully. nobody speaks for me, other than myself. >> reporter: but he told cnn, he won't filibuster a compromise that raises some taxes. >> we have to understand about our reality in some point in time, republicans have no power in this negotiation. there's only one person that can prevent taxes from being increased in the american public. it's the president. because without any action, without him being willing to sign a bill, taxes go up for every american. i don't want to see that happen. >> reporter: some conservatives who once had the power to say my way or the highway now realize the train has already left the station. some of these tea party republicans caution their new spirit of compromise largely depends on what the president proposes and a few of them remain convinced the president simply wants to take the country over the fiscal cliff, to gain the kind of leverage they used to h
